Verb Of The Spirit - Poem by Eric Cockrell

peace is not
the absence of war...
it is the presence
of life in all
of it's fullness!

never won by
guns and bombs...
achieved by letting go
of fear and ignorance.

peace begins within,
and then spreads,
when actions meet
the true heart's intent.

peace is a verb
of the spirit...
the answer to
the question not asked!

    Well said and well written - peace in our time, seems like an unobtainable ideal. (Report) Reply
